The Tea

Junebug Bayer (she/they) is a multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter from Santa Cruz, California who specializes in folk-fusion fingerstyle guitar, occasionally tastefully adding harmonica, tap dance, autoharp, kazoo, ukulele, banjo, and other people into the mix.

Once a sailing lunchlady, a goat-hearder, a lettuce trimmer, and a New York City street performer, Junebug has emerged as a talented musician and entertainer who draws from a wellspring of quirky life experiences to bring you spellbinding songs that combine folk, jazz, blues and swing elements. Packing a punch that will leave you smiling, Junebug’s performance is something you don’t want to miss, so check out Junebug on Youtube and book a live performance today!
